Materials: smooth, flat-skinned pumpkins, black acrylic paint (if desired), gold metallic paint, paintbrushes Instructions: For black pumpkins, first cover with a basecoat of black acrylic paint and let dry. 1.) Using the lines of the pumpkin as your guide, paint stripes with gold paint. Tip: For best results, work outside on a clean, flat surface on a dry day.
2. Choose your stencils 3. Visually map out your desired pattern and adhere the stencil to the pumpkin with double-stick tape. Dab a light coat of paint with a small brush over the stencil (don't overdo the amount of paint on the brush -- you can always go back and touch up the edges of the design if you need to). Allow paint to dry before removing the stencil.
